Description Dave Strauss 2002-10-17 10:08:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020827

Description of problem:
This morning I installed the kernel-2.4.18-17.7.x and
kernel-source-2.4.18-17.7.x rpm's, then I tried to rebuild the
kernel and the modules like so (as root):
      cd /usr/src/linux2-4
      cp configs/kernel-2.4.18-i686.config .config
      make oldconfig
      make dep
      make bzImage
      make modules

All steps including building the kernel seem to work, but when I
build the modules I get compilation errors (see attached build

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):2.4.18-17.7x

How reproducible:
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install 2.4.18-17.7x kernel and kernel-source rpm's
2.try to rebuild kernel and modules

Actual Results:  compilation errors:

Expected Results:  should have build the modules

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2002-10-17 10:27:05 EDT
looks like you forgot make mrproper
Comment 3 Dave Strauss 2002-10-17 12:18:12 EDT
OK, I'll try that when I get a chance (although at this point it
may take a while).  [whatever happened to just good old "make clean"?]
In the meantime this bug should probably be closed unless someone else
has the same problem.
Comment 4 Dave Strauss 2002-10-17 13:32:54 EDT
Running "make mrproper" first fixed the problem, so I'm closing it as
"not a bug".  Maybe I should RTFM next time?
Comment 5 Adam Pribyl 2002-11-03 08:13:39 EST
That mrproper was not done before somebody packed kernel-source rpm.
